I just wanted to give a quick congratulations to my wonderful boyfriend, Alex, for landing his grown-ass-man job as a crime reporter. We’re now officially a journalism couple. I love it… and him!

Erica’s Hot 100

28 May

Maxim just published their Hot 100 for 2012, and let me tell you, outraged was not the word to describe how I felt. When I picture a top 100 list it must have timeliness and it must acknowledge the celebrity’s relevance in that year.

Maxim’s number one? Bar Rafaeli. Really Maxim? First of all, a Victoria’s Secret model as your number one hottest woman? That’s just lazy! That’s like picking oxygen as your favorite gas to breath! Obviously a lingerie model is hot, that is literally her full-time job! And Bar Rafaeli? She didn’t even lead the ladies out at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year!

Also listed? Vanessa Hudgens, Megan Fox, Jessica Biel and Amanda Bynes. Sure, they’re good looking girls, but they have had no relevance in the last year. What are they doing there? There’s so much other super hot ladies that deserved proper places from this year!

Obviously I couldn’t stand to let this atrocity sit idly by like it didn’t neglect some ultimate hotties of 2012. So here’s my list. These ladies are not just hot because they look good in a bikini or have had a scandal or what not. They’re hot because they have sexy personalities, and are a plain ol’ hot presence on tv, movies and media. They’re hot even with their clothes on, a threatening kind of hot. See who I picked and what spot they earned!

Please note: This took research! Literal, jumping from website-to-website research. Never thought my life would come to that. Honestly, I’m okay with it.

Sorry I’ve been away!

23 May

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts in the last month. Work has been beyond busy, so I have almost no free time to do anything besides write, write, write… and not here!

To make it up to you, here’s a video of a cat riding a turtle.

200th Post about 200 Things About Me

30 Apr

Well here I am at my 200th post. Crazy to think that a lack of employment and a need to complain about life has gotten me here. And by ‘here’ I mean about as broke and weird as I was when I started this, but now with a job that makes me wake up early (I understand that 8 o’clock isn’t really early, but I still hate it)

I decided to celebrate my 200th post by posting 200 random things that haven’t made it into posts and probably never will, but are still pretty significant parts of my life. Included in that are: websites I love, things in general that I hate, places I want to go to, favorites, a bunch of weird stuff.

So check out my list of 200 Erica Things:

Your Daily Dose of Cuteness

20 Mar

My brother and his girlfriend just got a little baby kitten today. Her name is Cookie and she loves doing that shy baby, sleepy-eyed kitten pose for pictures.

Enjoy.

What’s the Deal with Baylor?

15 Mar

It is, of course, March Madness time. My bracket is already showing signs of breaking into a million tiny pieces, but that’s not what gets me the most heated.

It’s the stupid, ugly neon uniforms at Baylor.

When I originally saw these uniforms I didn’t like them. Animal print neon shorts… really? Stupid youths. But what can I say? I’m a traditionalist. I like big block letters, nice primary colors and a sharp fitting uniform. I tried to be optimistic and push past my old-school ways, but even still the uniform is actually incredibly annoying. When they’re all together and running back and forth it’s dizzying and really nauseating to watch.

Let’s stick to the basics, boys. Time to bring back the short shorts and Chuck Taylors.

It’s time to step up our game

7 Mar

Ever since I was young I’ve tried hard to be as involved in the conflicts of Africa as I could. In high school my Literature of the Holocaust class raised over $5,000 to help provide the refugee camps of Darfur with clean drinking water. Entering college and being preoccupied with being in college definitely distracted me from something that used to be very important to me, and having very little money for the last decade has made it more difficult to donate.

This video made me remember that while I was busy sleeping in and drinking, children were dying at the hands of monsters. The world is a scary place when we take the time to step outside of our bubble, but we can help!

This grassroots movement aims to arrest Joseph Kony by the end of 2012 and help put an end to child soldiers in Uganda. It’s driven entirely by us, the people with a voice, and by social media.

Check out the video, and most importantly share it! You may be as broke as I am, but we can let those that influence our media hear this message and help do something to stop it. So let’s use the sites that we are already glued to all day, every day to save lives!

Get Your Craft On!

2 Mar

As we all know, March is National Craft Month. Oh… you didn’t know that? Yeah I guess no one does but whatever.

To celebrate I would like to totally jam my blog up with fun, funky, affordable crafts and creations. Obviously I’ll post some myself, but I’m a working woman! And unfortunately that means I don’t have as much time to craft as I would like to… meaning all day, every day, every single second.

If you have a craft, painting, recipe or creative tip to share please submit your ideas to the masses. Click the “submit” tab in the upper right corner for details on how to do your thang. Submissions will of course get complete and total credit for everything they do. Besides that, stay tuned for this month of crafting glory!

Happy National Craft Month!

Happy International Pancake Day!!!
